What clubs is Tiger Woods using in 2020?
2019 was a pretty good year for Tiger Woods. He won his first major in over a decade at the Masters. He won the ZOZO Championship. He only missed two cuts all year. He climbed back into the top-10 in the Official World Golf Rankngs for the first time since 2013. He tied Sam Snead as the player with the most PGA Tour wins (they both have 82). He picked himself for the Presidents Cup and won all three of his matches, while captaining his side to victory.
Yep, not a bad 2019 overall for Tiger Woods.
But the greatest golfer of a generation – if not of all-time – doesn't rest on his laurels. Tiger Woods has big ambitions for 2020 and if that means upgrading the clubs that served him so well last year, that's exactly what he'll do.
Here are the clubs Tiger Woods is using in 2020:
Tiger Woods' driver
Tiger Woods is using the TaylorMade SIM Driver this year, replacing the TayorMade M5 he used last year.
"I have seen improvements in the new SIM," says Woods. "I'm a little bit faster. I have picked up a little bit of speed, which is nice. I feel like my start lines are a little bit tighter."

Tiger Woods' 3-wood
Whilst Tiger was quick to make the switch from TaylorMade M5 to SIM for his driver, he's been a little slower to upgrade to the new models when it comes to his fairway woods.
Tiger has been experimenting with the TaylorMade SIM Max Rocket 3-wood, but his M5 3-wood from last year hasn't been permanently dislodged from his bag – yet. We'd expect the SIM model to become his permanent 3-wood sooner rather than later, once Woods has had a chance to do more extensive testing and find the perfect setup for him.

Tiger Woods' 5-wood
Tiger Woods used the TaylorMade M3 5-wood last season and, like with the 3-wood, has interchanged the old and new model so far this season. Again, we'd expect to see him make a permanent shift to the new SIM model sooner rather than later, but for now he's favouring the old model.

Tiger Woods' irons
Tiger doesn't change irons often and spent countless hours with the designers at TaylorMade ensuring the P7TW blades suited him perfectly. Don't expect him to replace them any time soon.

Tiger Woods' wedges
Tiger is using the same wedges that served him so well last year, the TaylorMade MG 2 "Tiger MT Grind". Interestingly, he only carries two wedges – a 56 and a 60-degree.

Lofts: 56-degree (with 12 degrees of bounce) & 60-degree (11 degrees of bounce)
Shafts: True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400
Tiger Woods' putter
Athough Tiger did try a few alternative models last year, he ended up going back to his old faithful, the Scotty Cameron that has served him so well throughout his career. He has now put a Ping PP58 grip on it; that's the same putter grip he used as a junior golfer.

Tiger Woods' golf ball
Tiger has put the new Bridgestone Tour B XS ball into play and is liking what he sees. "I felt like I picked up maybe a quarter of a club in my irons, which was nice, without sacrificing any spin around the greens," he says. "I think it's a little bit better in the wind, into the wind. I don't feel like I have to flight the ball as much as I did with my other ball; I don't have to lean on it as much, so technology certainly helps."
